If you intend to drive within the LEZ, you should check with your hire company that the vehicle meets emissions standards. If it doesn't, and the hire company hasn't made an arrangement to pay the daily charge, you'll need to pay it.
Remember, the LEZ is not the same as the Congestion Charge zone in central London and the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). The Congestion Charge applies 07:00-18:00, Monday to Friday excluding public and bank holidays and the ULEZ runs every day at all hours. If you drive within either of these charging zones during these times, you need to pay them even if you meet the LEZ standards or have already paid the LEZ daily charge.
